Foreign Language Teacher Education Option, A.A.

Do You Want to Teach or Translate Foreign Languages?

This program prepares you for a career in teaching, translation or international business. The track includes foreign language courses and courses required for an Associate in Arts degree.

Foreign language study has many benefits, no matter what your career plans, including making you better at your own language, improving your decision-making, teaching you to be more perceptive, and even preventing dementia.

If you know what area you will concentrate in at the university level, you should use elective credits to meet the appropriate prerequisites for those programs. You are encouraged to be familiar with the admissions requirements at the university you plan to attend.
